[fre] Cet article cherche à développer une approche endogène de la croissance permettant de mettre en évidence les interactions entre la dynamique macroéconomique et le processus de changement technologique. Nous baserons notre analyse sur deux courants hétérodoxes de la théorie de la croissance : l'approche dite de la croissance cumulative et la théorie évolutionniste. Le premier, développé à partir des travaux de N. Kaldor, propose une approche macroéconomique de la croissance tirée par la demande. Le second considère la croissance comme résultant des processus micro-économiques liés à la technologie et à son évolution. Cet article propose une revue de ces deux courants de pensée, met en évidence leur complémentarité pour finalement les intégrer dans un même cadre d'analyse. [eng] This paper proposes an approach to endogenous growth considering the relationship between macro-dynamics and technical change. We draw upon two streams of literature : Cumulative causation and its macroscopic view of economic dynamics ; and Evolutionary economics and its focus on micro-determinants of technical change. This paper presents a survey of the formal representations of the growth process, identifies the possible bridges between these two approaches, and proposes a formal framework of analysis. Our daim is that merging these two distinct theories might offer a framework to consider the co-evolution of macro-dynamics and technical change.
